divorce and child custody battle. both generals wrote letters on her behalf, saying she was a good mother, and that her child custody situation should be relooked at. that was to a judge in the washington, d.c. area. so this is simply much more than just a very superficial relationship. it would seem like. that there was something very -- you know, a much deeper friendship or relationship going on here. >> right. let me ask you a little bit about that. because, you know, some people might say, well, look, if general petraeus' e-mail was hacked, the fbi should have known about that. but they didn't seem to, at least our understanding is. the whole way they stumbled into general allen, general petraeus, was actually through jill kelley telling a friend of hers, an fbi agent, sort of casually she was receiving harassing e-mails and he said as a favor i'll look into it. what can you tell us about the relationship between her and this fbi agent? >> reporter: well, that's a good question. as to what extent what was going on there. we don't know, quite frankly. but those e-mails were also sent to general allen and then general allen, from what we under, forwarded them back to jill kelley, as well. and that's what a lot of this was spurred on by.
